Vadim Ehrlich (Ganzha), the inventor of vintage Soviet synths started his carrier in early 80's. At first he was a DJ and was building equipment for his own Disci club, then he started assembling his own synths and in 1979 he started his own home studio.
In 1980 he assembled his first analogical music synthesizer ( a hard task in former USSR! ), shaping up his idea of "sound painting". At first, as a pioneer DJ, he combined his music constructions with lights effects in his disco performances. Finally he invented his own "in live" electronic music style called "quasi musical constructions" aka "absurdism". The main idea was to play all his instruments in real time and with no pre-recorded pattern. All his music boxes (small 2 VCO,VCF,ADSR,VCA) are rhythmically synchronized by main trigger generator whilst the performer controls all parameters manually.
